Where Are You Looking?


Pin It

I just finished writing a long note to Bubs' therapist.  We are between a rock and a hard spot believing that there is more to Bubs' disability but not sure where to turn for answers.  The social and anxiety issues appear to be intensifying.  He struggles more and more to find the words he needs to explain his thoughts.  We need answers.

Little Man had a good follow-up pulse ox screening.  We believe that better sleep will help his behavior.  How do we break 4 1/2 years of shallow sleeping?  How do we train his little body to truly sleep now?  We need answers.

My husband has been coming home from work only to immediately return to the computer.  As many of you know, the ABC Jesus Loves Me website has been on the fritz.  It is apparent that huge changes need to be made.  So, each evening he scours over Google searches looking for solutions.  We also realize that the website has grown too large for its current layout and changes need to be made.  But how do we smoothly upgrade an old site?  How can we best layout the website for the thousands of current and new families who will use it daily?  We need answers.

And I turn to my devotional this morning.
We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.  2 Chronicles 20:12

I kid you not.  This was the very first thing I read in my quiet time this morning.  Talk about God giving me what I need to hear!

I don't know what to do, but I am reminded Who does.  I don't know who to talk to in order to get answers,  but I know Who does. 

Again, I can't help but think of Peter eager to walk on waterHe defied science until he took his eyes off Jesus. 

We don't know what to do in these three areas of our lives, but our eyes are on Jesus as He will guide us each step of the way.

Holy Spirit, thank you.  You knew exactly what I needed to hear today.  Keep my eyes focused on my source of hope, strength, wisdom, love, and grace.  Pull my chin back up when I start to see the waves swirling around me.  In Jesus' name...

Where are your eyes focused right now?

  1. " Peter defied science...". I have learned a lot about faith lately that I never applied in my first twenty three years of salvation. However, due to my new baby girl, I have been backslidden in my word and totally exhausted. Satan has had a field day!!! "Without faith it is impossible to please God." This phrase will stick with me...defied brings my heart back to that verse. I want to please Him so much and fear is a theif of that. This truly encouraged my heart. What a reminder that my God created science and emotions, and He is greater and mightier than all!!!
